Directions
1.
Cut peel from oranges with a knife. Hold oranges over a bowl to catch any juice; cut between membranes to remove sections.

Cover and cook over medium-low heat about 10 minutes or until cooked through. Meanwhile, whisk orange juice, dark-brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Remove pork with orange sections to plate; keep warm.
